Biomedical engineer : Job description Biomedical engineers apply engineering principles and materials technology to healthcare. This can include researching, designing and developing medical products, such as joint replacements or robotic surgical instruments, designing or modifying equipment for clients with special needs in a rehabilitation setting, or managing the use of clinical equipment in hospitals and the community. Biomedical engineers are employed by health services, medical equipment manufacturers and research departments/institutes. Job titles vary depending on the exact nature of the work. As well as biomedical engineer, other terms that are used are bioengineer, design engineer and clinical scientist (in a hospital setting/clinical situation). Audiological scientist Biomedical scientist Clinical biochemist Clinical research associate Electronics engineer Materials engineer Medical physicist Radiation protection practition Biomedical engineering (BME) is the application of engineering principles and design concepts to medicine and biology for healthcare purposes (e.g. diagnostic or therapeutic). This field seeks to close the gap between engineering and medicine: It combines the design and problem solving skills of engineering with medical and biological sciences to advance healthcare treatment, including diagnosis, monitoring, and therapy.[1] Notable subdisciplines of biomedical engineering can be viewed from two angles, from the medical applications side and from the engineering side. A biomedical engineer must have some view of both sides. As with many medical specialties (e.g. cardiology, neurology), some BME sub-disciplines are identified by their associations withparticular systems of the human body, such as: * Cardiovascular technology - which includes all drugs, biologics, and devices related with diagnostics and therapeutics
